Asian LNG spot prices have slipped in response to a surge in supply, which has flooded the market at a time when regional demand has remained stable.

First Gen Corp. has held a ground-breaking ceremony and finished the pre-development work for its new LNG terminal.
Asian LNG spot prices have now broken the US$5.00 per million Btu mark, a result of a lack of growth in demand and continued high levels of supply.
